This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central and
southern Minnesota...and west central Wisconsin.

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Areas of light freezing fog are likely tonight, which could lead
to slick spots and reduced visibility.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

It is becoming increasingly likely a winter storm will impact the
region later this week. A band of light to moderate snow will
develop north of I-94 Wednesday and lift north Wednesday night.
A round of heavier snow may develop Thursday and persist into
early Friday area wide, potentially bringing significant
accumulations. Confidence in the exact track of the system and
accumulation totals remains low at this range.

Arctic air will follow the snow storm next weekend. Wind chill
values will drop well below zero.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of southwest
Iowa...west central Iowa...east central Nebraska...northeast
Nebraska and southeast Nebraska.

.DAY ONE...Tonight and Monday

No hazardous weather is expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday night through Sunday

There is a chance for accumulating snow Thursday and Thursday
night over all of eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa. A strong
cold front and upper level storm system will combine to bring the
chance for snow and strong north winds. Snowfall accumulations
still are not certain, as the timing of the cold front will
determine which locations experience precipitation in the form of
all snow or a mixture. Much colder temperatures are expected
behind the front, with wind chills from zero to five below zero
expected. These conditions will remain over the area into the


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.

337 PM CST Sun Dec 17 2017

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of north central
Illinois...northwest Illinois...west central Illinois...east
central Iowa...northeast Iowa...southeast Iowa and northeast


Fog and drizzle will develop tonight over portions of the outlook
area. The potential for dense fog is low, but there is a chance
for some patchy freezing drizzle to occur where the surface
temperature drops below freezing late this evening into early
Monday morning. The favored areas are along and east of a line
from DeWitt to Dubuque. If freezing drizzle does occur, it may
linger into the Monday morning commute, especially in far
northwest Illinois.


Latest indications regarding the Thursday into Friday storm system,
are that it is shifting the higher potential for accumulating
snow to the northwest and north of the Outlook Area. It is still
early for determining the exact track of this system, and those
with travel plans late in the week should keep up with the latest
forecasts and updates.


Reports of any slick road conditions late tonight and early Monday
morning would be appreciated.
